X-rays and Tricycles

Check out our synchrotron work with supercritical CO2!

Research in Dr. Wildenschild's group focuses on physics, chemistry, and microbiology of relevance to flow and transport in porous media, - generally applied to the subsurface environment. And in many cases involving multi-phase flow phenomena.

A primary focus is detailed and highly controlled experiments (addressing flow, solute and mass transfer, microbial alteration and transport) that can help us evaluate new theory and numerical models alike. We believe in the necessity of very accurate experiments to test theory and models alike, - we then use numerical models to expand investigations beyond the potential constraints of experiments.

The motivation is to provide answers to questions of importance to subsurface water pollution and management, remediation strategies, subsurface CO2 storage, enhanced oil recovery, and the processes of flow and transport in porous media in general.
